Privacy Seminar 2017
This is the main web site for the Privacy Seminar (NWI-I00136) of the TRU/e security master.
In this seminar we will explore the state of the art in privacy enhancing
technologies (PET), and discuss theories (technical, legal and
societal) of privacy.
The course code is NWI-I00136.
The seminar teachers is Jaap-Henk Hoepman.
You will do, in groups of two, a small research project on a particular topic, chosen from a list. The idea is to let you first investigate a particular practical case (what are the privacy issues (from a legal and societal perspective), how are they dealt with), and then let you perform some research using particular PETs to solve the problem. You present the results in class as well as writing a student paper on the same topic.
Presence at all lectures is mandatory! (Not present without a valid reason = fail!). Valid reasons are: illness, accident, other study obligation (like exams, study trip), important family events. Invalid reasons are: holidays, trips etc, even if booked before the course started, and many many others.
The final grade = (2*grade for paper + grade for presentation) / 3. If the grade for the paper or the presentation is below 5.5, the lowest grade is the final grade!
PrerequisitesYou should have successfully completed the Cryptography course.
LecturesThe first few lectures will be spent on outlining the course and the area of privacy enhancing technologies. We also have several invited guest lectures. Slides of the lectures will become available after the lecture.
WikiThe course is supported by a wiki, to which all are invited to contribute. You can go the wiki to request an account to get edit rights.
DeadlinesThe paper skeleton must be submitted on or before May 4. Deadline for the final paper is June 15. Both deadlines: 12 o'clock noon.
